Which Celebrity Would You Most Want to Tailgate With?
by Mo Johnson
OK, lots of interesting results from the week eleven Discover Fan Loyalty Poll. For instance, 22% of college football fans would choose Jay Leno to sing the National Anthem at their favorite team's home game.
This week's poll also asked fans which celebrity they'd want to crash their next tailgate or game day party. Comedian Will Ferrell and movie star Matthew McConaughey tied as most popular, each earning 24% of the fan votes.
For 10 consecutive weeks, Alabama had reigned as the best college football team in the country among fans, coaches and sportswriters, but the tide has quickly turned with the team's loss to Texas A&M, leaving fans from this week's Discover Fan Loyalty Poll in disagreement with major polls as to which team should take over the top spot.
Discover Loyalty poll fans gave the most votes to Oregon as the best team in the country right now, pushing the Crimson Tide to second. Last week's Texas A&M win also put them in the top five teams this week among fans, pushing Georgia off the list. When compared to other polls, coaches and sportswriters ranked Kansas State first, followed by Oregon, Notre Dame, Alabama, and Georgia.
Oregon passed up Alabama when asked who they thought would win the national championship this year. Oregon rose to the occasion and is in first place at 31 percent. But, after their loss last week -- look for Bama or Notre Dame to top the poll next week. Check back here to find out.
